    Re: Exchange password needed constantly

    Hi Simon

    Thanks for the reply.

    I installed the update rollup that you suggested, rebooted the server, and all is well again.

    I can’t thank you enough.

    The same goes for the rest of the guys. You’ve been great.

    Regards,
    Gustav

    Re: Exchange password needed constantly

    Hi Shaun

    Yes I’ve seen this site. It seems pretty helpful. When I do the RPC over HTTP test, I get the following result:

    Testing RPC/HTTP connectivity RPC/HTTP test failed Minus.gif Test Steps

    Attempting to resolve the host name mail.harveyjones.co.za in DNS. Host successfully resolved Minus.gif Additional Details IP(s) returned: 196.211.153.106 Testing TCP Port 443 on host mail.harveyjones.co.za to ensure it is listening and open. The port was opened successfully.

    Testing SSL Certificate for validity. The certificate passed all validation requirements. Minus.gif Test Steps

Your server may not be properly configured to send down the required intermediate certificates to complete the chain.

    Testing certificate date to ensure validity Date Validation passed. The certificate is not expired. Minus.gif Additional Details Certificate is valid: NotBefore = 1/8/2010 2:10:12 PM, NotAfter = 1/8/2011 2:10:12 PM”

    Testing Http Authentication Methods for URL https://mail.harveyjones.co.za/rpc/rpcproxy.dll Http Authentication Test failed Minus.gif Additional Details An HTTP 500 response was returned from Unknown

    It seems like the certificate trust is an issue, but I’m not too sure what is meant by the whole certificate chain. I was under the impression that the new 3rd party cert would have been enough.

    Regards,
    Gustav

    Re: Exchange password needed constantly

    Apologies for the double posting.

    The users on the LAN seem to be connecting great now without being prompted for passwords (the domain authenticated users of course):bowdown:

    But now the Outlook Anywhere isn’t working. I tried running outlook.exe /rpcdiag, but there’s nothing really helpful in there, it just shows “connecting”, while Outlook doesn”t connect.

    Is it possible that something we changed in the autodiscover settings might have made this happen?

    Re: Exchange password needed constantly

    Wow guys, thanks so much for all the advice. It’s greatly appreciated.

    OK here goes:

    Ossian: Yes, in the Outlook clients, it’s set to use basic authentication.

    Jedi: I have changed the auth methods in IIS to reflect what you said. The Autodiscover vdir was correct, but the EWS and OAB had both basic and windows authentication enabled, so I disabled basic authentication (will this conflict with Outlook’s basic authentication setting?).

    Then I followed the KB you mentioned, and it modified the Autodiscover URL in the Service Connection Point correctly, but when modifying the InternalURL for OAB, EWS, and UM, after I run the command, it doesn’t kick me back to the command line, I get the following: “>>” and it stays there. Does this mean it was successful?

    As a side note, in the commands to change the internalurls, I see that it specified the default web site. These directories are sitting under SBS Web Applications in IIS, so I amended the commands accordingly. Is this correct?

    Then I ran the Test E-mail Autoconfiguration, and here is the result:

    Autoconfiguration has started, this may take up to a minute
    Autoconfiguration found the following settings:

    Re: Exchange password needed constantly

    I have been reading up online, and could it be because of autodiscover settings?

    Re: ISA 2006 with 2 NICs

    OK maybe not that then.

    How about network adapter teaming? If I install the other NIC and somehow get them teamed, wouldn’t that be doing what I need?

    Re: ISA 2006 with 2 NICs

    Thanks for all the replies guys!

    TMG certainly looks like something to consider later on in the year,as I’m not too sure about implementing the beta on our environment just yet.

    One option that I’ve been looking at is the Network Load Balancing features of ISA 2006. Although this wouldn’t enable me to specify specific types of traffic over certain lines, it might at least split the traffic that is there over the 2 ADSL lines.

    Any thoughts/ experiences in this regard?

    Hi Marcel

    Thanks for your reply.

    Do you know of any programmes that I can use to accomplish this?

    Re: Send as permissions

    Hi Simon

    Thanks for replying.

    I thought that it might have been the case, but it has now been about 3hours, so it doesn’t look like it.

    What baffles me is that I’ve done it before with success. I bet it’s something really obvious.

    Thanks,

    Hi guys

    I managed to get it working, just had to use the command prompt option from the repair options and edit the registry. Please see below site for detail.

    in reply to: SBS console "no such object on server" error #348656

    Re: SBS console "no such object on server" error

    Thanks for the reply, but I really don’t want to reinstall SBS, since I was not the one who installed it, and haven’t done it before. I’m afraid that it’ll do more harm than good, and since things seem to be working okayish, Imight let sleeping dogs lie. I’d have loved to be able to play with SBS console though, it looks really nice. How do you find it?

    Magically seems to have disappeared over the weekend. I’m hoping it’s going to stay that way, but not holding my breath at all…

    Re: SBS console "no such object on server" error

    Thanks Andy.

    No, the original folders in AD aren’t there anymore, and I can’t add any new users in SBS console at all, it gives the aforementioned error, but the service is definitely started.

    I created a new user in AD, and it wasn’t showing in the SBS console, which I believe to be normal, so I did the “change user role”, after which it was showing in the console, but still, when I double click on it it gives the “no such object on server” error.

    Hi Andy

    Thanks for getting back.

    Yes I have tried installing the player again to no avail, but I’m not sure what you’re referring to autoruns from sysinternals …
